The Queen's Baton is here

Pit stop around the Commonwealth continues

The Queen’s Baton has arrived on the Island.

A party, including Chief Minister Howard Quayle and Commonwealth Games Association officials, greeted its arrival on Manx soil at Ronaldsway.

It’s the baton’s 43rd stop on a symbolic tour of Commonwealth nations ahead of the 2018 games on Australia's Gold Coast.

President of the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association, Basil Bielich, says it’s ideal timing.
